In Emma Issac’s book, “Winging It. Why Action Beats Planning Every Time”, she says that everyone is just winging it. That no one really knows what they are doing.
As someone who thinks that plans are important the thought that people are just Winging It” is hard to believe. Growing up, my parents would tell me the importance of planning and being prepared.
I do agree with her that is important to know what you want, but don’t be so rigid that you don’t give yourself the grace and the flexibility to pivot and make changes.
As I think back, she is RIGHT. This is how I:
How many times have you said “No” to a new job opportunity, moving to a new state or city, or trying something you have always wanted to do because you:
I know that saying “Yes” to something that you may not know everything about is scary or can make you a bit nervous, but I do know that for me that when I did say Yes, these were the best decisions that made a big impact on my life.
We can’t have 100% of everything figured out before we make decisions. Sometimes we have to make decisions based on our gut, how we feel, and the information that we have. We can lose out on great opportunities if we are trying to plan out and overthink every scenario.
Be flexible with the outcome. Sometimes you have to put yourself out there and take a leap of faith. You never know where the journey will take you.
This is a big one! We are capable of anything. We can learn anything. We have the ability to accomplish anything that we set our minds to. We just have to allow ourselves to dream big and go after them.
The one thing that I know is that you are in control of your life and you have the ability to do anything that you want. No one can stop you. It will take one thing – Action!
